I began editing and writing for Wikipedia in January 2014. As the titles below indicate, my primary interest is in Old-time radio. I am helping to expand Wikipedia's coverage of that genre in order to make more information about that era of entertainment available to the general public. I also spend much of my Wikipedia time on enhancing existing articles about radio, film, and television personalities of the past, particularly finding citations for under-cited articles.

My collection of links to Online Resources for Old-Time Radio Research is available for anyone who would like to use it.

I have created the following articles.

Basic copyediting

Discovering that pages need basic copyediting may surprise new visitors to Wikipedia. This is because the encyclopedia is a dynamic work in progress, published while it is being developed and updated in real time by people all over the world. Millions of the articles need simple improvements. You don't have to be an expert to edit Wikipedia. Just click the edit tab at the top of the page and start typing away!

Copyediting involves the "five Cs": making the article clear, correct, concise, comprehensible, and consistent. So, if you see something you can fix, click on the "edit" tab at the top of the page, and start typing in the edit window to fix it. Be bold. And, if there are any facts you know about the subject that are missing, then please, add them in!

For general help with editing, see Wikipedia:How to edit a page.
